Review quote

By concentrating on the question of how non-linguistic thought is possible and on its scope and limits, he has substantially advanced the debate. He combines impressive mastery of empirical findings from the cognitive sciences with well-informed and sophisticated philosophical discussions. For this reason alone the book will be compulsory reading in both quarters. Times Literary Supplementshow more
